This is how hot it was in Livermore, California today. Ice cream tends to melt quickly at these temps...

Amen. Perfect running weather for me is ~50 degs. If you put on running shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt, it's cold as heck but once you start running your body heat equalizes it and it's PERFECT. No overheating, no over-sweating... You can run FOREVER.

Oh well, at least that's one thing to look forward to with the end of summer.

I was visiting home over Xmas this last year and my wife and I are driving back from Dubbo to Brisbane. Now my wife is from Canada and this was her first time to Australia in summer. As we're driving, she looks at the tempreture readout on the dash and then looks outside. She repeats this a couple of times. (By this time it says 48C) She couldn't believe there were people walking around and working outside. Glad we had air conditioning.

I remember walking across a road in Lucknow once when it was 51C (probably hotter on the road, you know what asphalt's like for soaking up heat), the moisture on my eyeballs instantly evaporated and I was literally blinded by the heat. The wife and I sought shelter in an air-conditioned Dominoes Pizza outlet (there's only so much curry you can eat) and the readout on the A/C controller said it was 31C in the shop, but it felt like heaven.

Nice summer we're having in the Northern Hemisphere though. London looks like LA.

This is one advantage to living in Beijing: every place is air conditioned. When it's 40 and humid it's 25 and comfortable inside.

I've experienced temperatures from minus 60 to plus 45 and I'd rather have minus 60 anyday compared to anything over 37. I hate the heat.

East Coast USA humidity trumps California scorching, without a doubt. Had a girlfriend from West Virginia and she thought California was easy. Earlier this summer we had a taste of extreme heat plus humidity and it was like a pressure cooker---it was incredible. Felt like I had been in the "cooler" of the River Kwai film.

Honduras is the by far the hottest place I've ever been. I went during the "cool" season and it was 95 - 100 everyday with 95+% humidity. During the "hot" season it can get to 110 - 115 with 95+%! I felt like a steamed slug the whole time I was there. No appetite and no desire to move. The natives run around with long sleeve shirts and jeans during the cool season! Can you believe that? I was stripped down to a T-shirt and shorts with flip-flops and would have taken more off if it had been legal!

San Diego area is supposed to be a "dry heat", and I'm looking at 86% humidity with somewhat higher than average (record setter on Saturday)temps. Had to drop $400 on a new room AC Saturday just so I can sleep nights.

A warning to you skinny young guys: it feels a lot hotter when you weigh 80 lbs more than you did when you were 20. Lay off the tortilla chips with queso and salsa before it's too late.

Hey, leitmotiv, my brother works at MustangsPlus in Stockton. Ask for Bill (he'll be the short one) and ask him if he got that computer I sent him fixed yet.

When I was young, I was "too scrawny," now I am "out of shape"---an old footballer looked at me and said "mount you on wheels and you would look like a refrigerator." A Yank buddy in London said "You should have said 'Now I look like a football player.'" I have found people inclined to want to reduce you will always find something. Cary Grant was "too handsome," some thought. Develop sublime indifference. I call it "selective signification." You decide what matters, not the mob. By the way, a great many very beautiful people were podgy when young.

LOL sub-4:30 mile. That's kinda out of my league. I hope I get to live to see the the day where I break 5 minutes.

Maybe if I had been a runner since middle school.... But I only started running junior year in hike school. I'm a freshman in college now. I started running to lose weight (used to weigh in the 190's) and then decided to get competetive with it. I got some catching up to do.


And I agree with you completely Leitmotiv. All my non-runner friends call me skinny, but when you're with distance runners, you're measured up to a new standard where in many cases guys weigh as little as 120 lbs and like 70% of all their muscle is in their legs. I like to have some of it in my core and upper body so mundane tasks don't become a weight-lifting workout, like it is for some of my stick-thin runner friends. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What is this 'Fahrenheit' of which you speak so much?

34'C in the office, where they'd cleverly installed those two-hinged windows, which can hinge at the side or at the bottom, so that whichever way you opened them a pillar or doorframe would stop it opening more than an inch.

I hear rumours that the trains in Syndey would run around with the passenger doors open in hot weather. If only South West Trains, and Southern, would do that too...
